Chiropractic is about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. While typically thought of as "bone doctors", Dr. Costner actually focuses on the nervous system, particularly the spine, as the key to a healthy and pain-free body. The basis of our work focuses on correcting misalignments in the spinal column (called "subluxations"), improving the functioning of the entire nervous system. In order to reduce pain and dramatically improve quality of life, Dr. Costner makes 'adjustments' that re-align your body and re-establish proper nerve flow throughout the body. Once the correct structural order has been restored, the nerve signals between the brain and the body flow freely, allowing your body's natural healing systems to function optimally. Chiropractic work is widely researched, practiced, and respected, and has been shown to help a wide range of ailments, from allergies to whiplash.
We teach our patient’s special ‘blueprint’ exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%
We often find it helpful to ‘coach’ our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy.

Cervical traction is a popular treatment for neck pain. It can be used to help decrease compressive forces in the neck, which can help take pressure off of the discs that reside between the vertebrae (spinal bones) in the neck. It can also open up the spaces where nerves exit the spinal canal. Cervical traction is also used to treat herniated or bulging discs in the neck, arthritis in the neck and also cervical strains and sprains.
